Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said NCP chief Sharad Pawar's remarks that former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar quit his post at the Centre and returned to Goa as he did not agree with the Rafale fighter jet deal, were uncalled for.
“Rahul (Gandhi) ji too had attempted to say something like this earlier. It was a crass joke but Manohar ji was alive then, so he could give a reply. Giving statements like this after his death is not right. Manohar Parrikar ji had given a reply to this. He was such a man that eight days before his death he had said that he should get the chance to campaign for Modi ji in at least two rallies as there won't be a PM like him,” Fadnavis said.
